The course is aimed to provide the students with an exhaustive learning of the natural world as well as the experimentation of the scientific method for the study of the biologic components, their mutual interactions, and their interactions with the physical environment; it will prepare graduates which will be able to correctly interpret both the biotic and abiotic factors of the environment and their interactions. The studies are widely multidisciplinary, ranging from biology to geology and to geography, with robust bases of chemistry and physics.
Candidates with a high school diploma or an equivalent foreign qualification according to M.D. October 22, 2004 n.270 can be admitted to the three-year degree course in Natural Sciences.
The degree course in Natural Sciences is limited in number to 300 positions in the first year in order to guarantee the quality of the educational offer and it requires the completion of a TOLC (CISIA Online Test) as test of access.
The TOLC can be taken at the University of Milan or any other university belonging to CISIA (Interuniversity Consortium Integrated Access Systems). Registration for the TOLC must be made on the CISIA website (ww.cisiaonline.it). The valid TOLC for enrolment in the Natural Sciences degree program is the TOLC-S, comprising the following sections: Basic mathematics (20 questions - 50 minutes), Reasoning and problems (10 questions - 20 minutes), Text-comprehension (20 questions - 10 minutes), Basic sciences (10 questions - 20 minutes). Each question has 5 possible answers, only one of which is correct. Scores are as follows: +1 for every correct answer, -0.25 for every wrong answer, 0 for every answer not given.
For any other information about the TOLC test please visit https://www.cisiaonline.it/area-tematica-tolc-scienze/struttura-della-prova-e-syllabus/ .
The requirements and the announcement are available at https://scienzenaturali.cdl.unimi.it/it/iscriversi .
Students who have completed the TOLC-S and have enrolled for admission to the degree course in Natural Sciences, will be included in the merit ranking, formulated on the basis of the score reported in the test. The winners will be able to matriculate within the deadlines indicated in the announcement. The students who have not achieved a score greater than or equal to 10 in the Mathematics will be assigned Additional Training Obligations (OFA). In TOLC-S, there is also a section of English, consisting of 30 questions to be carried out in 15 minutes, the outcome of which does not contribute to the test score.
Students already enrolled in a degree course at the University of Milan, at another University or already graduated, can be exempted from the test only if admitted to years subsequent to the first, provided they satisfy the minimum requirements, i.e. at least 30 ECTS recognizable as exams of the Degree Course, of which 12 valid for the purposes of the Mathematics and Statistics Institutions exam.
To this end, a special request for prior evaluation of the career must be submitted by accessing the online service indicated in the admission announcement.
The interested parties will have to declare all the exams passed with the relative sectors, credits and grades and attach the course programs. For further details on the procedure please refer to the announcement.
The request for career evaluation must be submitted no later than June 10, 2021.
The evaluation result will be communicated via email by July 15, 2021.
Students admitted to the first year must take the test and register to the announcement.
Support activities will be organized for students with OFA, followed by a recovery test. The students who do not pass the recovery test will not be able to take any second year exam before having passed the exam of Institutions of Mathematics and Statistics (link: https://scienzenaturali.cdl.unimi.it/it/studiare/le-matricole ).
